Lent 2022

If Today You Hear God’s Voice . . . . 

During the season of Lent, we take a step back to consider God’s active presence in our lives no matter the struggles or challenges we face. Follow Campus Ministry on Instagram for some Lenten inspiration helping us focus on hearing God’s voice. Take a moment to consider how the lenten traditions of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving can be a part of your lenten journey.
